Gary C About The OnePlus 9 Series & ColorOS
Gary C, the lead of the product, spoke about the firm’s decision to change the Android variant for the Chinese market.
He said that as a tech company that is “global,” they always keep looking for many ways to address “different usage habits” or even preferences of all their global users. He added that they believed that this customized “operating system” that is new would help bring a better and preferred experience for their Chinese users.
BBK Electronics has ownership of both Oppo and OnePlus. The companies often share critical technology or even supply chains. The company’s other brand called RealMe, also utilized ColorOS. But they, too, are now developing their own software. It will be known as Realme UI.
Very often, the brands downplay their connections to each other— often becoming competitors in a cutthroat market. But OnePlus 9 using Oppo’s software now is a conspicuous example of their newfound collaboration.
